    It didn't take me long to find out that reason is not in their toolbox.  There is no real fact that they cannot refute, no matter how many hoops they have to jump though to do it.  Attempting to have a rational discussion of issues with people like this only leads to near-debilitating frustration for those who even occasionally inhabit the real world.
    This is shockingly similar to the behavior of people of faith.  And it is telling that teabaggers are some of the most devoutly religious people in the country.  Their delusions about Barack Obama are intertwined with their delusions about religion.

    It all goes back to the concept of faith, which I entirely reject, faith being "belief in something for which there is no evidence."  I have faith in nothing, which is what makes me an atheist.  I am also deeply bothered by the fact that "faith" is something that in our society is held up as being honorable, noble or admirable when it should be seen for what it is: delusional.
